Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport will look to put an end to their three-game winless run when they host Sutton to their Rodney Parade on Matchday 20. The Exiles dropped out of the playoffs berth, but a win over Sutton could see them climb to top seven in the standings. In-form attacker Dominic Telford should keep his place in the starting XI after finding the net in each of the previous four league fixtures.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Mansfield and Barrow. Sutton, though, failed to impress in the FA Cup loss to Bristol Rovers at the weekend. Since the Yellows are eager to return to winning ways as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three meetings in all competitions.
